The Great Barn stands central to the courtyard facies south, making the most of the natural daylight and timeless rural outlook across the orchards.

The spacious entrance hall and living area is adjoined by two en-suite bedrooms secretly lit by the original arrow slit windows.

From the entrance hall ascend the stone spiral staircase leading to the dramatic split-level, open plan living area and a third double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Here you can watch the clouds, star gaze through the clerestory windows or chat whilst preparing the perfect meal in the well equipped kitchen.

We had the most wonderful week in the Great Barn. It is a prized gem in picturesque Herefordshire.

We have recently returned from our wonderful stay at Kempley. We had such a fantastic time and felt very welcome. We enjoyed the swimming pool most days and everything was immaculate and clean. We embraced many local activities from gorge scrambling, cycling in the Forest of Dean, horse riding and beautiful walks in stunning National Trust sites. We would highly recommend Kempley Barns as there is something for everyone. It is such a beautiful and peaceful location to unwind and recharge. We wish Bob and Pet continued success and thank them so much for sharing their lovely barn with us.

We are very happy with our stay at Kempley Barns. Petula and Bob were wonderfully friendly and hospitable. The Great Barn was warm and cosy, and our 11 year old said his bed was so comfortable that he didn't want to get up out of it. The location is charming and tranquil, and the swimming pool is great; we were in it every day. There's a covered games area with table tennis, basketball hoop etc which was a big hit with the children. There seems to be plenty to do in the area and Bob gave us a lot of suggestions about historic sights and places to visit, but we only made it as far as Ledbury, so we will have to return to visit the other great-sounding places. The Wi-Fi seemed fine. We highly recommend Kempley Barns and would like to say a big thank you to Petula and Bob for their kindness, and for having created such a nice place for a holiday.

We went as a family for a short weekend break and had a wonderful time. Bob and Petula are wonderful hosts and made us very comfortable. There were 2 friendly dogs who greeted us on arrival as well. The swimming pool is in excellent condition and my 2 year old loved it. The barn was well maintained and had basic food provisions as well. Finally it was such a experience to stay somewhere with no city sounds or even lights (pitch dark in the nights) but just birds making tiny noises. We will definitely come back to spend longer holiday. Thanks Bob and Petula.

We had a wonderful week at Kempley Barns in August. Our grandchildren loved the swimming pool and the games barn. We adults loved the space and tranquility - especially taking the little rowing boat around the lake and sitting around the fire pit in the evenings. The surrounding area is lovely and we enjoyed exploring the Wye valley.
Would definitely recommend.
